Problem: Calculate the density of UO2a=0.474nm

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that density has a formula of:


mass = g
volume = cm3

We’re going to calculate for the density using the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate the volume of the 1 unit cell
Step 2: Calculate the density 

Step 1: Calculate the volume of the unit cell.

Given: edge length (a) = 0.474 nm
